Facilities and new and different approaches have been realized as collaboration between the school and the gallery or museum to raise the interest and better understanding in the learning of the subject Visual Arts Education. Museum Magnet School Program is a project-based academic program conducted in partnership with museums and schools. The program includes research, writing, creation of objects, the creation of exhibitions, and public speaking.It emphasizes the critical investigation and analysis in the learning process-oriented environment and fully interactive disciplines and expanding beyond the walls of the museum classroom, community, and world. Programs like this will expose students to a learning environment that is different from usual because students can understand what they are learning faster once the teaching and learning process more effective. This is because students can see and feel their own examples of historical material or artwork in reality.
  2. 2. 1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Education is a continuous process. In the philosophy of National Education, the goal of education is to create a balanced physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually. Only proper education can help a person overcome the challenges of life in the future. According to Dewey (1987) in Arman (2001), schools are social institutions and education is a process of life. In his book "Democracy and Education" Dewey (1916), pointed out that the existence of a community is through teaching and learning as well as transmission through communication. But most schools in Malaysia have failed to create the spirit of love academics and students fail to develop interest in the appreciation of art and history. This is because the only activities carried out in the classroom, whereas activities outside the classroom are also very important as visits to art galleries or museums to demonstrate clearly too specific examples.

  3. 3. 1.2 PROBLEM STATEMENT Problems in performance and academic achievement are closely associated with the activities carried out in schools. Based on the above discussion, it was found that most students are less interested and less motivated in learning the subject of visual art. This study will investigate the influence of a museum or gallery in the process of teaching and learning in schools. This study was done as most of the teaching and learning process in the school at present only conducted in the classroom only causes students not to know and understand an example of a clearly expressed by teachers. This is because not all students at the school to reflect on their own what the teacher explained. In addition, most teenagers or students are not interested to make a museum or art gallery was one of the places that should be visited and they do not know the importance of museums and galleries to themselves and society. It is hoped that this study will be able to meet the needs of various stakeholders, especially the serving teachers, government employees are learning, education researchers and university students as a reference.

Olofsson (1979) explains in some countries, tourist guide and several programs have been conducted for the purpose of education in a museum that can only be used by a small number of students and student groups. A fact that will set the truth through research done by the researchers, who carried out the exhibition and science activities related artifacts. This would be beneficial to better understanding of the past that have occurred (Stone & Molyneaux: 1994). The purpose of the museum is to provide education and ensure that any information supplied about a fact or truth is the truth.
